Clinical Trial Summary

This three arm study is to compare the effects of a coordinated PCP-Cardiologist Telemedicine Model (PCTM) with usual care and self-care in community hypertension management in China.


Clinical Trial Description

Background: Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and its control rate has remained low worldwide. Studies have found that telemonitoring blood pressure (BP) helped control hypertension in randomized controlled trials. However, little is known about its effect in a structured primary care model in which primary care physicians (PCP) are partnering with cardiology specialists in electronic healthcare data sharing and medical interventions. This study aims to identify the effects of a coordinated PCP-Cardiologist model that applies telemedicine tools to facilitate community hypertension control in China.

Methods/Design: Hypertensive patients receiving care at four community healthcare centers (CHCs) that are academically affiliated to Shanghai Chest Hospital, Shanghai JiaoTong University are eligible if they have uncontrolled blood pressure in the previous three months and access to mobile internet. Study subjects are randomly assigned to three interventional groups: 1) usual care; 2) home-based BP tele-monitor with embedded GSM module and unlimited data plan, an App to access personal healthcare record and receive personalized lifestyle coaching contents, and proficiency training of their use; or 3) this plus coordinated PCP-Cardiologist care in which PCPs and cardiologists share data via a secure CareLinker website to determine interventional approaches. The primary outcome is mean change in systolic blood pressure (SBP) over a 12-month period. Secondary outcomes are changes of diastolic blood pressure (DBP), HbA1C, blood lipids, and medication adherence measured by the eight-item Morisky Medication Adherence Scale MMAS.

Discussion: This study will determine whether a coordinated PCP-Cardiologist Telemedicine Model (PCTM) that incorporates the lasted telemedicine technologies will improve hypertension care. Success of the model would help streamline the present community healthcare processes and impact a greater number of uncontrolled hypertensive patients.
